Freshmen/Transfer Students

Scholarships are awarded based on a variety of criteria such as academic performance, leadership, and community involvement. Scholarships may be awarded by the university or through an outside agency. ​

Beginning the Fall 2014 semester all on campus students will be considered for the LSUA Academic Scholarship.  The scholarship will be based on your official academic credentials (SAT/ACT & GPA) and is contingent upon your application and acceptance.  ​

If you are a first time freshmen, fill out the Scholarship Calculator to see what you qualify for. ​

Transfer students with a 3.0+ GPA qualify for $1500 per year.

Please note that the criteria and amount for a scholarship are subject to change. Students in 100% online programs do not receive LSUA scholarships.

Students must maintain the following criteria;​

  • full time enrollment (12+ hours per semester), ​
  • earn 24 or more hours at the end of the year, and ​
  • maintain a cumulative GPA of a 2.5 or greater to retain any LSUA Academic scholarship. ​


International Student Scholarship

Awards are based on merit (such factors as academic achievement, leadership, extracurricular activities, awards and honors, employment, volunteerism and community service). ​


  • Must be a full-time (12 hours) continuing International student (F1-Visa) at LSUA. ​
  • Must be in good standing with his or her academic program with a minimum overall GPA of 3.5, earned at least 30 credits, ​
  • Have been enrolled at LSUA for at least two full semesters (not counting the current semester).​

Amount of the Scholarship​

Each year, a scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded either over 2 semesters for Fall and Spring, or only over the Spring semester. 

Honors Experience

The Honors Experience at LSUA is a unique opportunity for qualified students to obtain valuable experience that will help them establish, pursue and achieve long-term goals. Significant scholarship funds are provided to help students as they design their paths to success.

Eligible students are incoming first-time, full-time, degree-seeking freshmen who are on campus (rather than 100% online). Full-time students are enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester. Students from all bachelor’s or associate’s program at LSUA will be considered for admission.
